On Aug. 18 and 8, there were deadly wrecks in Cherokee County. Another fatal crash happened in Polk County on Aug. 13.

Rutherford County had two wrecks just days apart on the Aug. 9 and 11, and one killed a 15-year-old girl.

Troopers say drunken driving also led to a deadly crash in the Pisgah National forest in Transylvania County on Aug. 3. That's also the day a man was hit and killed in Henderson County.

And on Aug. 1, a woman was killed after a car flipped in Madison County. Troopers also suspected alcohol and speed were factors in that crash as well.
